I don't have a garden despite having a big-ish yard. I have a black thumb as opposed to a green thumb, I am both lazy and time poor. I also don't really like being in the sun for too long. So as much as I would love a nice garden, ain't gonna happen. But what to do with fruit and vegetable scraps? I know how bad it is to put them in the bin but I just have no idea what to do with them.
I saw a bokoshi bin which seems to produce minimal byproduct but are there any other options? Bear in mind I have no desire to be tumbling compost etc.

Compost.... But no garden

All we did was get a couple of plastic garbage bins and started throwing scraps in. We had two so we could rotate them. My parents bought an old wheelie bin, cut out the bottom and put it in the back corner of the backyard.

I have a worm farm- they will eat a surprisingly large amount without ever having to empty it. I would say I am 5 years in, and have emptied one tray (at least I don't remember emptying any more then that).
If you have any gardening friends, they will likely want the casings when the trays are full- but you can go years before that happens. Worst case scenario, you can scatter the casings over your lawn and improve the soil. Also, this will be a few years off.

I have a bokishi bin
Pros good compost seems break down quick etc (we do have a garden) you poor liquid out the bottom into a hug or whatever and poor on plants it's great
Cons THE SMELL! When you open to put things in yuck!! You put sawdust stuff to eliminate it but still gross. And it's chunky so takes up a bit of room.
Bunnings sell them ☺️
